Subject: RE: BS: CIA torturers (God Bless America)
So why is nobody marching into their office and nicking them for war crimes?

This is utterly irrational, that psychologists should resort to torture to garner information. What kind of shrinks are they not to know that their victims are certain to fugue under those circumstances? It'll give you the answers you want, but not the information you need, it's as reliable as a chocolate teapot. Why f'ing bother, if all you want is to go ahead anyway? Cut the cackle and keep it simple, if you're going to rule autocratically, then rule autocratically. What kind of conscience have these people got, willing to salve their consciences in a little lie by creating a bigger one like this? Or is their hypocrisy such that they're willing to torture and abuse just for the fun of it? And if so, then what kind of behaviour is going on in the current bunch to find that tolerable in their predecessors? They obviously have no moral norms, any of them, and are unfit for office en masse. And the same can be said of the UK for not holding them to a standard. What a bunch of utter shits - and to say not in my name misses the point, it was done in our name and we're entitled to hold them to account as a result.
We should be more than just shocked, we should repudiate the lot of them. A democracy which accepts such things is not worthy of the name, because they do act in our name, like it or not, they are entrusted to represent us and must be held accountable for how they do so. At least in the UK we have a plurality of parties: is there nothing to be done in the US to alter matters? If it comes out that the UK was positively implicated, then I shall most certainly be visiting my MP's surgery to make the point in person. The UK has no jurisdiction in the US, but we are signatories of the ICJ and if Blair is implicated, then we know what to do, I trust. Neither fear nor favour.
